After 446 games, longtime New Orleans Saints public address announcer Jerry Romig turned off his microphone at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome.
Romig, who has called every Saints home game since 1969, announced the final game of his storied career Friday night, as the Saints beat the Oakland Raiders 28-20 in an exhibition game.
As Romig prepared for his last call, he grew emotional, fighting back tears as he took reporters down memory lane.
"It's really hard to describe," the 83-year-old Romig said. "It's a long time coming, 44 years. Just being a part of this program and what the Saints mean to this city is hard to describe. What would the city be without the Saints?"
